Mortlake is the final destination of the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race. You won’t have to take to the river to reach restaurants in Mortlake, as the district has its own train station with regular connections to Waterloo and Clapham Junction. With its Thameside location, Mortlake offers some stunning river views, and is also home to the former Olympic Studios, where the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and The Rolling Stones recorded some rather well-known songs for posterity.
Mortlake restaurants are stylish yet informal, and there’s a good selection of Mediterranean and world food eateries in the area. For a truly eclectic selection of flavours, try The Depot, located within stylishly converted stables on Mortlake High Street. Polished wood floors, brick archways and river views accompany menu options such as Shepherd’s pie with glazed chantenay carrots and minted peas or walnut and fig frangipane.
For a lively entertainment venue with a hearty, steak-based menu, head to Don’t Tell Fred on Sheen Lane. Enjoy live music and comedy as you dine in this chic yet informal venue. A varied wine list and cocktail menu sits side by side with food choices like tender cut of sirloin steak and pan fried gilthead sea bream fillets with mange tout, rice and a lime and chilli butter.
